Three tracks are playing backwards; these are:
These files can be listened to (playing correctly) by using Quicktime (hitting CONTROL + Left Arrow). They can also be reversed and then saved using the free Audacity program (the same program allows you to convert the WAV files to MP3).

Missing LOI Tape
I didn't know if anybody knew. As a backup until Tape 22 is uploaded, try www.honeysucklecreek.net.
It has the Apollo 8 audio that was recorded at the Honeysuckle tracking station. It does have the LOI. Keep up the great work.

Distantsuns - you want tape 056-AAA. It seems that after tape 048-AAA, there was another load of tapes that cover just the public affairs circuit, and these begin with tape 049-AAA. (In fact, 049-AAA has the full countdown and launch as broadcast live at the time.)
There are 5 files that appear to be faulty:
They sound very muffled, as if replayed on a machine that is out of alignment.
This really is a wonderful project - and full marks to John Stoll.

Missing LOI Tape!
Okay, after wading thru 3 days of audio and looking forward to here the confirmation of LOI, it turns out that that tape is the one that is missing, tape 22. Tape 21 ends about an hour before the first LOS and tape 23 starts near the end of orbit 1. grrr...
